We are so troubled for such young people Minds like stained glass, broken in steeples There is no comfort in this city's hands And there is no company, save the hicks and the heavy metals bands I have been here now longer than I'd like It's where I've spent most of my loneliest nights Still I wish I could flourish where I'm planted Time is still time and not to be taken for granted City of refuge, city of Sadness runs in the city's blood City of refuge, city of City of refuge, city of I sit in sadness like it's a chair And it's uncomfortable but I'm too bored to care I'm in love now and that helps a lot But I still look and see all that can't be forgot So here's the trigger, but I'm so scared I could pull it now, but I feel so unprepared And here's the thing: what if I can't sing? What if I can't make it with only words and strings? Words and strings City of refuge, city of Sadness runs in the city's blood City of refuge, city of City of refuge, city of lost love What does it take to look inside yourself? What would it change? What if you were someone else? City of refuge, city of Sadness runs in the city's blood City of refuge, city of City of refuge, city of lost love

I look for words to say that I have none I look for fixes for things I've never done And I want you but I won't say that you're the one I waste my days worrying 'bout days yet to come I run away in hopes I will be followed I turn my back hoping that you'd grab my collar I try real hard to sound like I don't bother Take what I can chew but not what I can swallow What can I do? Your thoughts are all I think What can I do? It's how an island sinks What can I do? It makes me so sad to think how I want you but What can I do? A name, a face, a stranger at the best You fight the urge to run up and confess Things that mean so much to someone who means less You fight the feeling God don't stand by what he says What can I do? Your thoughts are all I think What can I do? It's how an island sinks What can I do? It makes me so sad to think how I want you but What can I do? You look so mean when you turn your back on me You smile so hard, to hide, but I can see And I'm so see-through from the holes you put in me Now if alone is what I want, alone is what I'll be What can I do? Your thoughts are all I think What can I do? It's how an island sinks What can I do? It makes me so sad to think how I want you but What can I do?

You're Weak 02:48
My feelings are my own Your feelings are your own But if we always keep them hidden We’ll always be alone. We are ephemeral and little more. What is now is what’s in store. Can we stop wasting time? Aren’t you tired of pretending to be blind? But Oh, I am alone again And Oh, oh, that’s all right ‘Cause I need so much more Than just another dimming light. I’m not saying that you’re wrong. No, that's not your defeat What I’m saying is, you’re not strong What I’m saying is you’re weak But Oh, I am alone again And Oh, oh, that’s all right ‘Cause I need so much more Than just another dimming light.

Last night I thought about if you were dead I thought about the funeral I might attend My best friend said she would go with me And we talked it out like it was happening I thought how the people would be so confused By me, a stranger, all consumed I bet I’d get kicked out for staying so long By maybe your girlfriend or maybe your mom No one knows what you mean no one knows what I see If you’d be patient with me Then I could rest in peace Sometimes I think about if we’d never met There would be so much less shit to forget Or would I be strung out on any old man Is there something in you that I can’t understand? No one knows what you mean no one knows what I see If you’d be patient with me Then I could rest in peace There are things I’ve been trying to say There are things I’ve been trying to hear I’ve been trying to stay out of your way But I was just living in fear No one knows what you mean no one knows what I see If you’d be patient with me Then I could rest in peace
